You will likely fall into two groups: those who have presents and those who now desperately need ideas.
When considering a gift for someone, always keep the recipient’s interests in mind. For example: Does she lean green? Does she stay busy with her job and rarely treat herself? Does she appreciate quality time over material things? It doesn’t matter who you’re shopping for. Whether it’s Mom, an influential woman who raised you, grandmothers, sisters or friends, the point of the day is to make the special ladies in your life feel appreciated.
Of course, you always can send flowers. It’s a rare few who don’t love receiving them.
But if you haven’t already scheduled the delivery, it’s probably no longer an option. Or if you’ve got a lady in your life who has adopted a greener existence, she probably won’t want cut flowers.
At Calvert’s Plant Interiors (5308 N. Classen Blvd.; 848-6642), options beyond the regular bouquet of flowers abound. Choose a potted plant — something that she can enjoy for more than a week.
The store offers an array of orchids, agave palms and aechmea bromeliads (which happen to be on sale right now!) for the flower side of things. Then choose one of the many pots to personalize based on where the plant will be housed.
If Mom doesn’t have time for gardening, she probably rarely takes the time to pamper herself. Stay a step ahead and consider a gift card for a spa package or massage.
Pure Spa (3011 N.W. 63rd; 840- 7873) offers a variety of services such as facials, massages and a full day of luxury that includes a two-hour massage, choice of facial, refreshments, chocolates and a special gift bag.
If your special lady prefers quality time with loved ones over alone time, consider creating a night to bring people together. Grab wine from Urban Wineworks (1749 N.W. 16th; 525-9463) and some decadent treats from 42nd Street Candy Co. (4200 N. Western; 521-8337) and settle in for the night.
If you still want to have something for her to open, consider a gift card for an activity that the two of you can enjoy together. Stick with a massage or facial, tickets to a play she’s wanted to see or even a membership to the gym or yoga studio.
Consider the person you love and what makes her happy. Go from there, and you’ll be just fine. Let’s shop, OKC!
